Yuli Gorodinsky – Relics

Yuli Gorodinsky – Relics
International Photography Grant 2019

About his project says Yuli: I am a traveler in my own land, an eternal migrant. I wish to gather memories; reorganize the materials of reality into an alternate entity. In my wanderings, I usually find myself drawn to relics, to traces left in the landscape. To all those signs left behind by culture, which at times become a sort of preposterous testimony. Sometimes enchanted and tempted by the exoticism photography offers, in other instances my perspective becomes ironic and critical. I am drawn to figures that look lost. Detached and disconnected. Often it seems as though they belong to a species on the verge of extinction, existing in a bizarre, ephemeral reality. Ghosts scattered on the earth, which is itself in chaos. My work contains a yearning, but it is unclear what for. This is a longing with no addressee, an unfulfilled romanticism, and it drives me to continue.
